Consistency of effort has not exactly been a hallmark of Hassan Whiteside‘s career.
He seemed to sleepwalk through the first half of Portland’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers — 1-of-7 shooting and listless play (especially next to the Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell). At halftime on TNT, Shaq ripped Whiteside (and to be fair, the entire TNT crew did as well).
Whiteside was told about that after the game and spit a little fire. Via Ben Golliver of the Washington Post.
